Why Puerto Ricans in Florida could swing Senate race Trump delivers another promise to conservatives with Supreme Court Dem senator to oppose Supreme Court nominee, cites "corrupt bargain" with "far Right" MORE (D-Pa.) is also up for reelection and has said he will vote "no" on Kavanaugh. "His extensive judicial record is defined by fairness, thoughtfulness, thoroughness and analytical precision".

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh, 53, on Monday, making his second high court pick in as many years.

Wisconsin's other senator, Republican Ron Johnson, said earlier this week that he supports Trump's decision to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy with Kavanaugh and was looking forward to a quick confirmation.

Some Democrats have called for a hold on the process since Republicans held up former-President Obama's nominee ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

"Judge Kavanaugh has written some troubling things about environmental protections, consumer protections, commonsense gun safety laws - all of which should be carefully examined by this Senate and by the American people", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

"I wish that he could go back there and vote because I think that he would fully support him". There'll be the usual attempts to sully his reputation not only in the Senate but outside of the Senate, but ... "We're not just going to stand by and let this happen".

Republicans hold a slim, one-seat Senate majority, and a party-line vote would lead to Kavanaugh's confirmation by the narrowest of margins. Abortion, like parenthood, is a deeply personal and sometimes complex decision for a woman, and no one can make that decision for her. Decisions about whether to choose adoption, end a pregnancy or raise a child must be left to the woman and her family to determine based on their faith with the counsel of their medical provider.

The AJC has not taken a position on the nomination, and Stern said it was studying Kavanaugh's record, specifically with regard to issues of immigration law, religious liberty, separation of church and state, and reproductive freedom.
